Türkiye Concerts Announced
“My relationship with Türkiye goes back to the early Eighties when I first visited after embracing Islam. The welcome I received was so affectionate and strong, I felt at home immediately. Turkish music also had a lot to do with my return to singing in 2006. The ilâhiler (Divine songs) I was introduced to were so inspiring and familiar because of my Greek-Cypriot background.”
Yusuf / Cat Stevens
Yusuf Islam / Cat Stevens is set to perform sold out shows at the AKM Turk Telecom Opera Hall in Istanbul on 19th October, 2022 as part of the Beyoğlu Culture Route Festival and at the CSO Ada in Ankara on the 23rd October, 2022 as part of the Başkent Culture Route Festival. Profits from the shows will go towards supporting the legendary singer-songwriter’s Peace Train charity. This will be the first time that Yusuf Islam / Cat Stevens has ever performed in Türkiye and will lead the way to more international touring in 2023, God willing!
